This review made me cry out laughing:
Quote:
The product I received was flawed. After spending several hours struggling with the packaging, I finally obtained access to the cable. When I tried to plug it in, it didn't fit, so I started to try to force it in. After about an hour of this, I finally got the cable in. To my disarray, it did not work. Now, the cable is stuck in my computer (I'd assume broken), and I have one less USB port. I was very unhappy with the product.
Seriously...who wants to be an expensive piece of metal that I believe that even a 30 dollar cable will do the same, maybe if not better.

Reminds me of the Bose speakers...

People who would pay those kinds of prices for a freakin' cable deserve to be ripped off.

That's kinda what I thought at first, but the way Best Buy sales people are, they'll probably push this type of crap on old grandmothers with 19 inch TVs and antenna programming.

Knowing very little about technology doesn't equal stupid. When a salesman sounds knowledgeable about something, people are usually inclined to believe them.

Only the purest, purity of the pure copper wiring of the upmost purity is used in the AKD1. Denon uses equal parts of ancient Mesopotamian spear tips, Roman Drachmas fondled by Julius Ceasar himself and decorative copper from the Aztec pyramid of Tenochtitlan for the wiring in the AKDL1. The refinement process is quite complex and also partial classified. All we know for sure is that the NASA advanced research lab, the NSA and the Air Force Area 51 and 'skunkworks' labs are all heavily involved.
